On a life-changing tour of her favourite literary idols, Indigenous lawyer Jasmine and her mother, Della, traverse England to explore the homes and lives of Britain’s most famous storytellers. But tragedy greets them when a local girl goes missing. While Jasmine dives deeper into the words of her heroes – the likes of Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen – her mother rekindles her relationship with the wisdom and storytelling of her own culture. This book is about the connection between mother and daughter, the humanity of stories, and love for home and country.
